Netball:

The U15A netball team had a fantastic week of results, with four wins in the Reading Schools League against Kendrick, The Wren, St. Joseph’s College and High Down. Well done to all the girls who played in the matches, the player of the match went to Bisi, Tiger and Emma Kendall.

On Wednesday the Senior C netball team put on a great performance playing against Claires Court B team. Although they lost all the girls put in a fantastic performance and each week are improving, well done to Maddie who received player of the match.

The Senior A team played superbly well against Shiplake College, showing their strength together on court, and winning their match 39-20. The player of the match went to Nic Lee for her great work at defence, applying pressure and turning over the possession to LP.

Another great match from the Senior B netball Team who played against Shiplake College and won 29-14. The player of the match went to Lauren Corfield who was a key centre for the team and showed great movement down the court to get it to the goal.

Football:

The U14 A's kept up their 100% record in the Super 5 competition with a 3-1 win over second placed Holme Grange. Louis Cook continued his excellent goal scoring record with 2 well taken goals and man of the match Dan Aram scored an outstanding bullet header to seal the win. The team will host Luckley House next Thursday knowing a win will clinch the league title.

The 1st XI lost 2-0 to Claremont Fan in a close game. LP deserved more for their excellent football but wasted good chances. A win next week against Haliford is now the focus.

The 2nd XI drew 3-3 against Claremont Fan in a very exciting game which swung back and forth. Kushal put LP 3-1 up with an outstanding free kick but they were denied right at the end and had to settle for a draw.

The 3rd XI played their best football of the season and were unfortunate to lose out 1-0 to a unbeaten Salesian team.

Hockey:

Last Friday the Fryer A team had a home game against Shiplake U13s in which they won 6-2 thanks to a goal from Emil and an impressive 5 goals from captain and player of the game Oli Oke. Well played to all the boys and good luck for their next game tomorrow against Lord Wandsworth

Yesterday the U15s had their first run out as a team against Shiplake in what was a thrilling end to end game. Both defenses were tough to break down, but a special mention to Jack Mancey and year 8 Tom Hewitt for their defensive displays. A nail biting end for the crowd saw the boys just lose out 1-0.

Later today and over the weekend we welcome a touring side, Woldingham School who will provide our U13 girls with some hockey and netball matches. Good luck to all.

Rugby:

For the first time ever all Fryer Boys played in a competitive rugby fixture on Wednesday at home against Pangbourne College. For some of the Fryer Boys it was their first ever game of rugby!

The U12B team played some superb rugby and showed real heart in defence against a physical Pangbourne side.

The U12A played an attractive brand of free flowing rugby which eventually saw them run out 20-0 winners.

The U13B team played against a well drilled Pangbourne A squad who were starved of the ball for much of the first half due to the great defence work put in by the U13 B team. This allowed Leighton Park to have lots of possession and run out 20-15 winners.

The U13A team played some great offloading rugby and the skills on show for both teams was very impressive. LP eventually ran out 20-0 winners with Man of the match going to Ashton Illinic for his work effort in defence and his huge carries in attack.

The U13 A and B and U12 A squads sit top of their respective leagues. The Fryer boys will be back in league action after half term where they hope to match the feat of the U14 rugby squad who won the Berkshire Schools league before Christmas.

Basketball:

The U18 squad made it 2 from 2 in their SOCs league beating The Oratory school convincingly 43-23. They play RGS Guildford after half term and stand a great chance of taking home the silverware this season if they carry on playing his way.

Cross Country:

As we speak there are 6 teams with 25 runners in total competing in the ISA Regional Cross Country Championships at Sherfield School this morning from Year 7 all the way up to the L6th. We are hoping for some good team and individual results and aiming for some runners to represent the London West team at the National Cross Country competition in March.

After their success at the Berkshire Schools Cross Country Championships Ben Rowe has been picked as a reserve runner for the senior boys and Mia Waldmann as the 4th runner for Berkshire girls intermediate team competing at the English Schools Cross Country Championships in Liverpool in March. Mia was 3rd in the county for the Berkshire competition and is not here to receive her medal today as she is running at Sherfield.

Congratulations to all our XC runners.

Team of the week: U18 B Netball

Manager of the month for January: Zoe for great results with the U15 Netballers and the recent win for the U18 A.
